To celebrate, honor, showcase, and respect the rich and vibrant Hip Hop Culture in the Northwest. PDX Hip Hop Week's primary focus is unity, growth, and development of each core components of Hip Hop expression, while creating a great environment for Hip Hop to thrive.
PDX Hip Hop Day was founded by Idris "STARCHILE" O'Ferral (RIP) and David "O.G.ONE" Jackson in 2014. The proclamation by the city of Portland was as a result of two years of behind the scenes meetings to address the Portland Hip Hop community's concerns with certain entities in Portland.. The launch was a collective statement that Hip Hop was and is welcomed and valued in the city, but we still have work to do in building together.
